    Pelosi Flip-Flops on Assault Weapon Ban

    ABC News

    [The ball is in Congress's court to craft a compromise in reinstating regulations on assault weapons, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) acknowledged Tuesday.

    During an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Pelosi said that the Congress will work to find some middle ground between the previous ban, which expired in 2004, and the precedent laid by the Supreme Court in a ruling enumerating more concrete gunowners' rights last term.
    "We have to find some level of compromise," Pelosi said, citing 53 victims of gun violence nationwide in less than a month." (Create a crisis to then ram through your unpopular "fix" for the problem.) "And we have to rid the debate of the misconceptions people have about what gun safety means." (We're going to ignore the will of the people. Whose safety? Ours, or the government's?)

    "Yes, it is," the Speaker said when asked if the ball is in Congress's court now that Democrats control the White House. "And we are just going to have to work together to come to some resolution." (We need to be creative about how we go about trampling on the constitution.)

    Pelosi indicated that new regulations might entail registration and prohibitions on transporting some firearms across state lines.


    The Speaker also expressed displeasure at the attachment of a gun rights provision to legislation that would grant Washington, D.C. a voting member of Congress. (Can't let the peasants in D.C. run loose with those nasty guns)

    "Right now, we have the debate in Congress over the District of Columbia wanting a vote on the floor of the House, something we all want. (Blatantly unconstitutional!) That's a civil rights issue," she said, pledging to find "middle ground" on the issue. "
    They want to attach a gun bill to that?

    We'll have to keep a close on Komrade Pelosi.

    Liberal translation: We're going to find a way to outlaw guns and there's nothing you can do about it because we control all 3 branches of the government, SUCKERS

    We are living "historic" times; not because we have a black in the White House ... but because we have a nutcase running the House
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    a bunch of people would like to say I told you so about right now,
    lots of folks thinking it won't happen for awhile, after next election, etc.......
    I don't trust any of 'em and they are good at crafting speeches and legislation to look like they're looking out for us/protecting us.....when we get the shaft in the background

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

    Pelosi is a sneaky weasel and she scares me way more than Obama on the gun issue.

    Ok, so where is the flip flop? It is a pretty well established fact that Pelosi is anti.

    The gun legislation being proposed for the DC bill is legilstation that is pro 2A. It was very ironic to listen to the hearing the other day with the delegate from DC asking about crime ect in DC. She is the one that is raising such a stink over the pro 2A amendment being added to the legislation. She however doesn't currently have a vote in the floor.

    I see nothing new on Pelosi's end. Nothing new here in my opinion.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    because just a few weeks ago she contradicted Eric Holder's comment about reinstating the AWB very soon, she and Reid said that was not on the agenda, it wasn't something they were looking at doing

    Everyone thought that there was so much going
    on in the World, that gun control would not pop
    up on the radar for a long time.

    Well...it hasn't been that long since the "Change we
    can believe in" and they are already talking this
    way.

    Half dozen bad eggs, causes change for millions of people. I just don't get it.

    Number of guns and gun owners in USA.

    Most estimates range between 39% and 50% of US households having at least one gun(thats about 43-55 million households). The estimates for the number of privately owned guns range from 190 million to 300 million. Removed those that skew the stats for thier own purposes the best estimates are about 45% or 52 million of american households owning 260 million guns).

    A congressional representative for Washington DC is 100%, no wiggle room, no 'new' interpretation, absolutely illegal under the Constitution of the United States of America. Why then would the 2nd Amendment mean a darn thing to these phyco-crates?

    What those in Washington are doing is far, far worse than anything done by King George 250 years ago. Read the words of Patrick Henry and Thomas Paine for advice on our current situation.

    Want to do something? How about, instead of enacting policies that have always failed, trying to get people help who need it? More heavily encouraging family members to get each other help, or reach out for help themselves?

    Or how about this - for example, the PA shooter. If you REALLY want to focus on his tools instead of him, how about the fact that he was dishonorably discharged, yet still passed the NICS checks? How does that make sense? If you're going to make laws like background checks, make sure the system works, and is updated.
